It was fantastic to see over 200 colleagues of the global Thomas team unite under one roof, giving us the valuable opportunity to share strategic updates, collaborate on best practice, celebrate success and have some fun.
Following last year’s conference, which focused on building the foundations to enable accelerated growth, this January 2019 we centred around the next phase – embracing our digital future. After kickstarting the GLE 2019 by introducing our vision, I was pleased to welcome to the stage my now fully-formed leadership team – this was not only to give them the chance to introduce themselves to those who they had yet to meet, but also for them to share what they’ve been working on, and what their key initiatives are to actualise Thomas as a digital disruptor in the psychometric assessment space.
We also welcomed tech evangelist Theo Priestley, two Thomas customers and Thomas advisor Professor Adrian Furnham who all shared invaluable and provocative insights which will be vital as we begin our digital transformation.
Now, more than ever before, I feel energised and confident that together we can do everything we stood up in front of you and said we want to do; we can embrace our digital future, we can drive growth, we can achieve £100m and we can maintain our amazing culture and passion. I am proud to work with you all and know that you will play a vital part in moving Thomas forward.
The Thomas GLEs are getting bigger, better and more important as we grow as a business and I would like to once again thank everyone who was involved in the planning and smooth running of the event. On behalf of the senior leadership team, I would also like to thank each and everyone one of you for getting stuck in and taking part, and for your continuous efforts to support Thomas and our exciting future.
